AS Roma is considered a very dangerous betting online dark horse when it comes to winning the Serie A title, but if the season ended today, Jose Mourinho’s side wouldn’t even qualify for a UEFA competition. A victory over Fiorentina could change that, but the Gigliati, who only lost one of their last four road games, won’t be easy prey.
Let’s check the latest Serie A odds, stats, injury reports, and Serie A lines for AS Roma vs Fiorentina. We’ve plenty of Serie A betting odds for you to consider.
Dybala Leading Way for AS Roma
Last Sunday, AS Roma visited AC Milan, also known as the reigning champs, and managed to win a point. The heavyweight fight finished 2-2. Good thing we predicted a draw, right? I hope you’ve followed our advice.
Mourinho’s side scored twice in the last six minutes of the game. In fact, Tammy Abraham scored the equalizer in stoppage time. In other words, we’re talking about a squad that never gives up. That’s Mourinho’s seal.
Paulo Dybala is having a great season. The Argentine is the team’s top scorer with five goals. Midweek, he scored the winning goal against Genoa in the Round of 16 of the Coppa Italia. Dybala, Abraham and Nicolo Zaniolo have the potential of becoming one of the most dangerous attacking trios in all of Europe. Lorenzo Pellegrini is also having a great season and leads the team in assists with five.
The home side is even money in the sportsbook. Being 4-1-3 when playing at home has a lot to do with that. They scored in five of those games and finished with a clean sheet three times. As mentioned before, AS Roma are used to putting up a good fight. All three defeats were by the same score (1-0).
Fiorentina Regaining Confidence
Last weekend, Fiorentina returned to the winning column by defeating Sassuolo 2-1. Ricardo Saponara and Nicolas Gonzalez were the scorers. Like AS Roma, the Gigliati never give up. Gonzalez scored the winning goal in stoppage time.
Midweek, they also managed to advance to the next round of the Coppa Italia. They defeated Sampdoria 1-0 thanks to Antonin Barak, who scored in the first half. Besides the victory, the return of Luka Jovic, who missed the previous two games due to injury, was great news.
The Gigliati are 2-2-4 when playing on the road. That’s basically why they’re offering a +285 price to win straight up. That’s very tempting because you could end up winning $285 for every $100 wagered on them. The visitors have a scary attacking trio of their own in Jovic, Arthur and Christian Kouame. Despite being eight points behind AS Roma, Fiorentina has scored 21 goals, the same as Mourinho’s side.
Believe it or not, all four defeats on the road were by one goal. Summing up, we’re talking about a feisty soccer betting underdog.

AS Roma vs Fiorentina Picks and Prediction
Dybala is inspired, but Fiorentina simply can’t afford to lose, at least not if the Gigliati want to remain in the race to win a ticket for a UEFA competition. Expect a back-and-forth battle in which I think both will score, enough to consider including the over in your soccer picks, which is set at 2½ (+105). Nevertheless, the draw is offering a much better reward.
